Thank you so much for a great event!

Taste of Greenwich House is a premier tasting event that brings together more than 30 of New York’s most innovative restaurants and food purveyors, including staples and new eateries alike, in support of Greenwich House’s social service and arts education programs. In addition, the event features a silent auction with foodie-inspired bid lots including tickets to theater, dance, TV and sporting events, unique ceramics and much more.

Guests will be entertained with live music by Becca and the Kings as they dine. Freestyle Love Supreme will also be giving a taste of their improvisational hip-hop performance after a sold-out run at Greenwich House Theater! For an extended show, upgrade to a Gourmet or VIP ticket.

Proceeds from the event go directly to Greenwich House’s diverse programming including mental health treatment for victims of child abuse and home-bound seniors, after-school programs for urban youth, senior wellness programs, free arts exhibitions and community concerts.

NYC's top restaurants will be serving custom tastes. Here's who you'll be able to find at Taste of Greenwich House, to date:
